Italy will have an edge over England when the two former world champions meet in the UEFA EURO 2020 final on July 11.
The Blues have previously played in three European Championship finals. They won against Yugoslavia in 1968 on home soil, this was after a replay; lost via a golden goal against France in the Netherlands in 2000; and against Spain in Ukraine in 2012.

The Italians will be banking on their past experience in the final as they have two players, who played in 2012 final in France. 
Veteran central defenders Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini both started for the Blues in the 4-0 loss to Spain. 
Bonucci said Spain gave him the hardest challenge of his career after the Blues edged into the EURO 2020 final after winning 4-2 on penalties following a 1-1 draw on Tuesday.
"It was the toughest game I have ever played," Bonucci said. 
"I congratulate Spain for what they showed, but once again this Italy showed heart, determination and the ability to push through difficult moments."
